And now for my favorite part….the QUILTING.  For this block, I use both the walking foot and the free motion foot.

PattyAnne’s BOW #4 Part 2 – Road to Oklahoma – Marking & Cutting Fabric

​​I LOVE the fabric used for this block – especially the blue with the little gold flecks. I love a bit of bling!!💕

The cutting for this block is pretty straightforward. If you go to my previous blog post, I have written out the cutting dimensions for you.

As mentioned in the notes for the video, if you’d like to use the same fabrics that I’ve used, you can purchase a fat quarter bundle from Christa Quilts here.

Next on to BOW #3 Part Three where we plan our quilting strategy AND quilt the block.  See you there!!

Road to Oklahoma

PattyAnne’s BOW #4 Part 1 Intro – Road to Oklahoma

In this video,  variations of the Road to Oklahoma four-block layout are shown.  As mentioned in the video, the final four-block quilt measures 20″ x 20″ – a perfect size for a table topper or a wall-hanging.

Cutting directions for EACH of the 9″ x 9″ blocks:

  • Cut 4 squares 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″  (green blue and white fabrics)
  • Cut 2 squares 2 1/8″ x 2 1/8″ (green and blue fabrics)

Tune in to Part 2 where we will cut and sew the block.

Next, on to Part 3 where we will plan the free motion quilting, plan the walking foot portion of the quilting AND actually quilt the block.

Block of the Week · Road to Oklahoma

I Love the Color Palette for BOW #4

These colors just make my heart sing. I cannot WAIT to get started on this BOW! The patterns and videos  will be eady…… I’ll meet you back  here on Sunday!!

Today, however, I’m resting after eye surgery – YES, I’m THAT old.  Don’t worry though, I’ll be up and at ’em in a day (says ME).

For now, I hope you are enjoying these BOW quilt alongs as much as I am. 🙂

See you soon to enjoy a cuppa together AND a new BOW.

Two of my FAVORITE quilting tools:
I love using these pins to baste my quilts rather than the ‘stinky’ spray baste. Click on the image for more details.


Also, I ALWYS wear my Machingers Gloves whether I’m walking foot quilting or free motion quilting. Again, click if you’d like more info.
